History of Mi Fan Festival:
The first Mi Fan Festival was held on April 6, 2012 in mainland China when Xiaomi decided to hold an event to celebrate the second anniversary of its founding. Since the Mi Fans played an important role in the rapid growth of the brand, Xiaomi invited them to celebrate their birthday together with a large party dedicated to them. The place was set up as a disco and the guests were able to celebrate while a DJ played and interacted with them. 100,000 Xiaomi smartphones were sold that day in just 6 minutes and 5 seconds. Since then, Xiaomi has held the Mi Fan Festival every year to show its appreciation to its users and followers for all their support.
Outside of mainland China, the Mi Fan Festival was first held in India and Indonesia in 2015, before launching into European markets in 2018, when the first shopping fair was held in Spain. This year will be the 10th annual event of its kind, and even more global markets will come together to celebrate the occasion, including Colombia.
